Reformed discussion board is a Christian non-profit association that exists to aid the church in her name to discipleship. We serve the church through speaking the riches of our theological culture and advancing it in accordance with our confessional limitations via in-depth examine and scholarly discourse. In this selection of essays, the authors set forth the salient gains in their shared Reformed identity, a precise theological voice.
Lane G. Tipton establishes our redemptive-historical method of the Scriptures with an essay on Jesus within the outdated testomony. He demonstrates that the Scriptures of the outdated testomony presuppose a revolutionary, natural, revelation of the Messiah in promise shape that offers solution to eschatological achievement within the humiliation and exaltation of Jesus Christ. Christ isn't an afterthought. The church needs to obtain the Christ who's actually printed within the Scriptures of the previous and New Testaments by way of the supernatural supplier of the Spirit. He speaks powerfully in Scripture as a revelational checklist of the historical past of exact revelation.
Camden M. Bucey builds upon Tipton’s paintings by way of demonstrating our trust within the courting among biblical and systematic theology. whereas either disciplines are in response to exegetical theology, systematic theology organizes the instructing of Scripture topically whereas biblical theology reports Scripture because it steadily unfolds. We think a real Reformed theologian mustn't ever in simple terms be systematic but in addition biblical-theological.

Waddington addresses the doctrine of salvation together with his bankruptcy on union with Christ and the ordo salutis. not anything is extra major a few Christian than the truth that he's united to Christ. the good news is that the triune God has introduced us right into a blessed courting, a covenantal communion bond with him via his Son. we now have each religious blessing within the heavenly areas in Christ (Eph 1:3). In accord with that excellent fact, Glen J. Clary reminds us that Reformed theology isn't basically highbrow. It has bearing upon our perform. We have been created to glorify and luxuriate in God endlessly, and for that reason Reformed theology has to be directed towards worship. by way of following his be aware, we event his grace and develop ever in the direction of him.
Our id is hidden away with Christ in God. but Jesus calls us to be salt and light-weight on this planet. As such, we're separatist although now not isolationist. James J. Cassidy explains this life. we're electorate of heaven and never of this international. we're pilgrims touring during the wasteland unto the Promised Land, our everlasting relaxation within the New Heavens and New Earth. Cassidy develops an ecclesiology and ethic of heavenly-mindedness. we're in a battle, yet “we don't strive against opposed to flesh and blood, yet opposed to the rulers, opposed to the gurus, opposed to the cosmic powers over this current darkness, opposed to the religious forces of evil within the heavenly locations” (Eph 6:12). As such, we struggle now not with the guns of this global, yet with the guns of Christ’s heavenly kingdom.
Jeffrey C. Waddington directs us during this struggle with a concluding bankruptcy approximately Reformed apologetics. We guard the religion at the foundation of the self-attesting note of God. We search to percentage the uncompromised message of Christ crucified and raised for sinners.
